It's up on hackage here:

I'm not sure how easy it would be to track down the error once you get
it, but I suppose knowing is better than not knowing.

I haven't made any attempt towards making the bounds-checking cheap,
so this isn't a solution for deploying an application which needs fast
integer operations with bounds checking.  This is more for testing or

Let me know if you find this useful, or if you think it needs any work.
